CANTON, GA (May 30, 2024) – Looking for something fun and local to do this summer? Wanting to sample some of the tasty experiences across Cherokee County? Destination Cherokee GA, the tourism branch of the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce, has partnered with 12 local businesses to create a Tastings Tour throughout the month of June. You can, “Travel at your own pace. Choose your own adventure!”

Coffee. Beer. Wine. Ice Cream. Olive Oil and more! Join us in experiencing a variety of offerings around our county. In Ball Ground, Barrel House Coffee Co. offers barrel-aged coffee, tea, and treats while Dot’s Fine Wine & Craft offers wine-tastings, charcuterie, and craft beer.  Four businesses in Canton are participating including neighborhood craft brewery Laurel Canyon Brewing and The Holler, which is a new hotspot in the heart of downtown for trivia, karaoke, live music, and indoor/outdoor dining. Two additional Canton options at The Mill on Etowah are Canton Cigar Co. that provides a selection of cigars, bourbons, whiskey, and craft cocktails, and Suds & Bottles, a wine and beer tasting room.  When visiting Woodstock, stop at Pelican’s Snoballs to enjoy over 100 flavors of shaved ice and soft-serve concoctions, Leaning Ladder for premium olive oil and vinegar tastings, and Kilwins Woodstock to sample heritage chocolate, hand-paddled fudge, treats and ice cream. Dulce Artisan Gelato has delightful homemade gelato and new specialty gelato drinks, Pie Bar offers handcrafted sweet pies, savory pies, and coffee, and Tiny Bubbles Tea Bar offers bubble tea, Vietnamese coffee, and French macarons. With so many options, don’t just choose one, get the family involved and make an adventure of it!

In addition to experiencing all that our county has to offer, you can also earn prizes as you go!
